'The technical standard could hardly be better' these are exceptionally fine perfomances.'
American Record Guide

'In performances marked by subtle dynamic shading, great sensitivity of phrasing and near-faultless ensemble, they [Musica Contexta] prove that the essence of Palestrina's music lies in the detail.'
International Record Review on CHAN 0652 (Music for Good Friday)

'If Palestrina is acknowledged for the pristine quality of his music for the Sistine Chapel, Musica Contexta reveals that beneath the surface of his smoothly articulated textures there lies a wealth of humanity and an acute spiritual response.'
The Daily Telegraph on CHAN 0617 (Music for Maundy Thursday)

'Beautifully composed singing eloquently communicates the quiet atmosphere of the Lamentations, linked by expressively curvaceous phrasing in the plainsong responses.'
BBC Music Magazine

'A superb Palestrina collection, beautifully performed and recorded.'
Gramophone
